SOOMAA NATIONAL PARK / SPRING / APOCALYPSE

/ENG/
Earlier this week Tenks and I, Kristjan, visited Soomaa national park.
I was hoping to see some flowers and green nature taking over the place. Actually it was  a bit depressing, grey, empty, some crows on the trees and nothing to visually show that its spring yet. Yet Soomaa is always a cool and mystical place to explore. Swamps, forest and  never-ending straight roads.
The best way to visit Soomaa is to take the train to Viljandi and head 90 kilometres west to Pärnu through the park.

Soomaa rahvuspark – kena loodus, rabad, lõputud sirged lõigud ja mõnus hall kevad täis harakaid ja tühjust. Samas on seal alati kergelt müstiline õhkkond nagu Eesti loodusele kohane.
Reisi alustasime Tallinnast rongisõiduga Viljandisse, sealt läbi rahvuspargi Pärnusse. Umbes 90 kilomeetrine sõit on hea päevamatkaks. Samas kui suvel on soojem, leiab Soomaalt ägedaid metsaonne, kus veeta öö ja nautida täielikku vaikust!

And hey spring, come to ESTONIA!!

20 kilometers before Pärnu the Sun came out and proved that colors still exist in Estonia.
